I got up early to make the trek to Bombay Hook and got there shortly after sunrise. I immediately ran into a Short-eared Owl, who posed very nicely. A life bird and a rarity for me!
I hadn’t checked for closings before I left (I should know better) and quickly found that most of the refuge was closed. I decided to make a first visit to Prime Hook to check for the Snowy Owl who’s been seen there. He didn’t show, but I found a nice Sparrow.
I made a quick stop at Kent Narrows on the way back.
